    I admire the engineering of it, but as a watch....... No thanks.

    Very polarizing brand, but I like what they do and if I had that kind of money to drop on a watch, I would have a few for sure. I know they are not your average watch look, but I'm sure I would spend most of my day looking at those amazing movements doing their thing. They are amazing micro machines!

    I think all their watches have something special, but the EMC is a bit of a different animal. I like it quite much.



    Oh, and it's Urwerk, not Uhrwerk

    That watch, ugly or not, certainly took some serious engineering.

    Hell yeah.

    I appreciate it for that, just as some people appreciate a Patek for its symbolic value.
    Watches are no longer watches beyond a certain point of whatever excess.

    This Urwerk, and watches like this, may not be something I would want to wear every day, but then, they are not designed for everyday wear.
    Not really. Maybe every day appreciation, and... bragging,
